I keep mentioning all of the different disciplines of shooting and their respective competitions. There are tons! With each gun type there are at least a dozen niches of competitions.

I think I chose the most difficult shooting discipline for the ability to practice. With my Palma (long range rifle) I have matches as far as 1000 yards away. In Washington there are only 2 ranges with 1000 yard points. One of which is Fort Lewis and civilians have been locked out of their since… Read more »

I have 2 very big goals to capture. One, I want to be one of 16 members of the USA Palma Team. Every 4 years there is a World Cup held in a different country. In 2011 it will be held in Australia. It is too late for me to try out for this event… Read more »

Sheesh! I sent my casting video in on Sunday and I got a call on Monday! A Top Shop rep called and we spoke about 10 minutes for him to ask me more questions. I realize they need to really screen everyone well before inviting them to final casting call. He mentioned they liked my… Read more »

This is year I am getting serious about my “Across the Course” competing with my AR. Charles and I took a little breather last summer from competing to spend more time with friends and take weekend vacations. My new year’s resolution (well, I started this early Dec. actually) is to practice daily!  I know, if… Read more »
